I have some facial bleeding in random places on my face. This morning my pillow case had a lot of blood on it and on my cheek. you couldn t even see a scrap or scratch or anything. Not the first time. But in different places on my face. Im always in the sun and 2 years ago I use to go tanning . And it happens right after exposed to the sun. Can this be skin cancer?

The condition that you describe is highly unlikely due to skin cancer. Skin cancer generally presents as a non healing ulcer or an enlarging mole or proliferative growth. First i would like you to be sure that bleeding is not from the nose as habitual nose bleed is quite common after sun exposure. If that is not the case then you probably are suffering from a skin condition and should consult a dermatologist.
